I was just watching the video of a guy tying a 56er, using a number 10 4 x streamer hook with a down eye. He put on 10 - 12 wraps of lead wire on the hook shank, then added a duck feather tail, yarn body and hackle. He explained it was to imitate a immature crawfish. My question is will the hook point ride down or up. If that is not enough weight for pull the shank down and the point up. How much is needed.

My second question is "Why does no one put a snag guard on a trout fly? A couple of strand of 8 - 10 mono should do the job.

I wait the wisdom of the membership.
